GENERAL CONDITIONS

The lake is FULL! The rain this past couple days has muddied up the lake quite a bit. We are expecting a few nice days this upcoming week, hopefully water clarity will get better. Our current water level is at 106%. Overall fishing has been slow. . Our latest trout plants was during the week of February 20th in the amount of 750 pounds. Video of the trout plant is available on our Facebook page. Currently all trout plants are suspended due to water going over the spillway. Water temperature remains in the 50’s and water clarity is about less than 1 foot of visibility.

All of our boats are half off Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays, including Patio Boats!!

CATFISH

No reports of catfish were reported getting caught this past week. When fishing for catfish, the best bait to use is either chicken liver or mackerel. Make sure to cut 2” inch chunk of mackerel and putting it on a size 1 or 2 hook and half ounce weight works best. A simple trick to use when using this bait is wrapping magic thread around the bait to ensure that it doesn’t fly off when casting. Typical hotspot for catfishing is fishing near the Island and back by Raccoon Point.

TROUT

Overall trout fishing has been slow. Successful anglers are using PowerBait and mice tails to lure them in. When setting up make sure to use a sliding sinker set up with a ½ oz weight and at least an 18” leader line. Trolling also has been slow. Water temperature remains in the 50’s and visibility is about less than a foot. All fish plants have been suspended due to water going over the spillway.

BASS

Bass fishing had a slow week. No bass were caught. Please practice catch and release for bass, as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!
